I was on a yarn diet, I gave it up...I'm not so much a crocheter, as I am a yarn hoarder..Yes, I hoard yarn...I watch that A&E tv show called "Hoarders" or the other one "Buried Alive: Hoarding" and I think - that could be me!
As a teacher, I naturally tend toward hoarding, we were told this year to streamline and declutter, as we are going to have large class sizes next year. I'm also moving to a room with no storage...I packed up more than 20 boxes and they are in my storage bin now....I will probably bring more up when I unpack in my new room in August..
I also have more than 25 crates of yarn in storage and a ton of it sitting behind me right now in the computer/yarn/extra room...
Yesterday I bought this at WEBS:
That is: 5 skeins Claudia Handpainted (2 for the blog prize)
10 skeins Debbie Bliss cashmerino chunky (been looking for this color)
2 skeins of Misti Alpaca Handpainted DK weight (I have 4 skeins of the super chunky in this color)
2 skeins Misti Alpaca worsted (cuz I liked the colors)
1 skein Rowan Calmer (I have a lone skein and bought another to make a hat)
1 Schoppelwolle ball in cranberries (bought another last week, they only had 1 and I wanted 2)
1 skein Madelinetosh tosh sock in lichen (cuz oh so pretty!)
1 skein Spud and Chloe sock (cuz I've wanted to use this yarn)
I took my yarn diet tag down from the side of this blog, cuz I am pathetic and it is summer and I will be visiting LYS's. The HUBS doesn't comment about my yarn, we are also overrun with his cd's (but in full disclosure, he did own a store of them). We both buy tons of books, too.
So this is my vice...It makes me happy...I don't drink, smoke, or gamble...so I guess, except for my pocketbook, noone gets hurt...
Now to spend the day logging it on Ravelry (I already have over 700 yarns logged on there)
